CONFERENCE LASTS ALL NIGHT
CHICAOO. .Tun- 1 fi.- The Chicago
street car strike Is over. It was rot
tied by an agreement to arbitrate,
and by noon the familiar roar of the
elevated trains was heard overhead
and the gong of the aurface rara
warned pedestrians to dodge quickly
The appearance of the first aur
face car come hours after tbe ele
vated trains were running was the
occasion of a demonstration in the
Windows of office buildings along
the route were crowded with persons
who cheered the visible evidence that
the forty-elght-bour strike waa at an
Th settlement waa reached after an
all-night eonferenre behind locked door
tn the mayor's office. It waa attended
by Mayor Thompson, the aldsrmanle
mediation committee, th grievance com
mittee of fie unions and the presidents
of the Irsctlon companies.
The arbitration board will consist of a
representative of each aide, with Mayor
Thorn pan n the neutral member. Tha lat
ter generally waa credited with ending
the strike. The other arbitrators have
not yet been named.
The strike waa remarkable In that no
violence waa traced to a striker; that no
arrest were necessary and for the grxxl
humor with which the puhllr accepted It.
The selection of Mayor Thompson came
at tha and of a fifteen-hour conference,
which began yesterday afternoon. Union
leaders, officiate of tha traction lines
and members of the mayor's aklermanlc
strike committee, were in attendance.
Threatened break-up were frustrated
after both labor leaders and traction of
ficiate announced they could reach no
agreement when Mayor Thompson In
vited the conference to take off their
coats. The mayor then locked the doors
of his office, lie told the men that he
would keep them until a solution of the
situation waa reached.
The mayor took a gold horseshoe from
hie desk and hung It over his deek
lock. . .
"That waa given to me for good luck,"
lie Mid, "so I'm going to wish that It
wUH bring good luck to this conference."
Thompson U Selected.
After a heated discussion on the ques
tion of selecting a third arbitrator.
Jveonerd A. Busby, president of tha Chi
sago aurface lines, mentioned the name
ef Mayor Thompson. Names of scores
of prominent men previously suggested
had been thrown Into tha discard.
The oommltteeN representing the street
car men, headed by V. D. Mahon. retired
with his assistants to another room to
consider tha proposal of accepting
S Mayor Thompson. Within ten minute
' they returned. '
"We'll Uka him," was the simple en
nounoement that electrified tha weary
croup of men. Hand clapping and cheering-
echoed through, the corrldots of the
Mayer Thompson unlocked the doors of
the office. The labor leaders put on
their coala and marched out, their facts
wreathed in smiles.
"Walt a minute," called the mayor.
"I want to tell you men how much T
appreciate what you have done," he said.
"I will accept thla responsibility, and
know it will be hard. I will do the best
I can. and see that a square deal la given
all aiwund."- '
Sessions of tha board of arbitration
probably will be begun early next week.
